The AK is more likely to crack than the AR, I have fixed enough to know that this is the case
My statement was more for folks to be careful when buying an AK because there is some garbage out there.
As far as being on the business end of one, I have been on multiple occasions with a purple heart to prove it. So I dont need to be lectured on that.
I will still take an M1A or an M14 over an AK or an AR.
The AK is a KISS weapon and in that it excels, but this mythology that the AK doesnt break and is some kind super weapon is just that mythology.

I know its hard not to feel for places in the world plagued by social strife, and genocide, but always remember guns dont pull their own triggers, people kill people. This has been going on in the world probably as long as its been inhabited. At one time clubs, swords, spears, and bow and arrows were just as feared as an AK.
